India in England, 1990
1st Test, Lord's - England won by 247 runs
This Test completely belonged to Graham Gooch, who followed up his 333 in the first essay with 123 in the second. His 456 still stands undimmed as the highest aggregate by a batsman in a Test match. Riding high on Gooch's triple coupled with centuries each from Allan Lamb and Robin Smith, England surged to 653 before declaring the innings. In the face of adversity, India showed stomach for a fight as Ravi Shastri and Mohammad Azharuddin hit hundreds of contrasting styles. Kapil Dev lashed 77(including 4 sixes in four balls) lower down the order to enable India avert the follow-on.
The hosts batted with aggression, smashing 272 runs in the second innings at 5 runs an over before declaring the innings to set India a 472-run target. The pressure swelled to a crescendo in the last innings. India batted for survival and it lasted just 62 overs. England won by 247 runs and aptly it was Gooch, who finished it off, firing a direct throw to run-out Sanjeev Sharma.

Rain overnight. Rain in the morning. Rain in the afternoon. Thus, rain has the final say at Bristol. The cut-off time was 15:47 BST but rain refused to relent, rendering the opening ODI as a damp squib. Over to Cardiff now for the second ODI on August 27. The forecast for Wednesday is not all that promising either. Many thanks for your warm company amid this wet fixture.
Oops, it's official that the match has been abandoned without even the flip of the coin.
The boundary edges resemble a lake. It is still spitting down at Bristol. The cut-off time is 15:47 BST. Well, it has been that kind of a day!
Harsha Bhogle has some news for us. Check out his latest tweet: will be very surprised if we get a ball in today. super soppers working but rain unrelenting.
India in England, 1986
3rd Test, Edgbaston - Match Drawn
It was a gripping Test match where all three results appeared possible on the fifth afternoon. However, bad light coupled with rain denied both sides a victory as the match ended in a draw. Kapil Dev ignited a dream start for India, removing both Gooch and Athley for ducks. Mike Gatting then helped England recuperate to a fine 390 with the lower order making handy contributions. There was not even a hair to separate both sides at the end of the first innings as even India managed the same total. While Mohinder Amarnath top-scored with 79, seven other batsmen passed 22.
The English top-order got to a steady start in the second essay but none of the batsmen could kick on. The target for India read 236. Gavaskar's fifty was the highlight of the last innings before rain and bad light denied the fans of what could have been a last-gasp finish.
It is still raining at Bristol. Have a gander at part 35 of our detailing of India-England Tests in England. As we had promised, our special feature stretches into the ODIs as well. Hopefully, this brightens you up a touch.
